any recommendations on where to get a set of 70 rally wheels restored? Thanks Gordon
They do wire wheels AND the Buick Rally wheels. Did a lovely job on mine
Ok that’s great, thanks
Works for me, try it again.
I'm getting site not found also,..how much did they charge for a set?
Site works for me too. Here's their phone # if anyone wants to call and ask bout the cost to restore a set of Buick wheels. If you find out, please post it here as I'm curious too.
i just got off the phone with Rally America and they Do Not do steel Rally wheels any more other than riviera wheels and wire wheels???
he gave me name of 2 other companies, Wheel Smith and Stockton Wheel. I am calling them now to see if they can do them. gordon
i talked to these guys and they can do them , cut apart, strip, rechrome and weld back together ~$455 per wheel. U paint the centers. i have another lead also...
$455 per wheel? Did you mention you had a 455 GS before they gave you a quote? LOl
Well we have a good machinist in our shop and we are going to try cut apart a sacrificial wheel in the lathe to see if we can restore a wheel and get it back together. Wish me luck... Gordon
UNDERDOG350 used to perform this upgrade to replace the rim shells and he did a great job. Did 6 wheels for me.
The wheels I have are original to the gsx so we want to keep the original shells with correct date codes.
I had my rear wheels cut apart on a lathe by Dragway Wheels Australia, they then sourced 10 inch rim bands, had them chrome plated and then welded them back together,
All up cost $1005 Aussie dollars.
shipping would kill me to deliver to Australia. I would like to go there someday but not to get car parts lol.
I wasnt reccomending you do mate.
Though have you looked at the exchange rate lately??
Its very much in your favour!
Ship in an actual ship and bring a car to and youd clean up!
Youd have transport here for when you got here, and do well enough on the sale to pay for your trip.
Not as crazy as you think.
Our Canadian dollar is taking a beating against the American buck, I’ll look into your currency, thanks.
